Thinking of You

This is actually a Sympathy card . . .

 . . . when is there a better time to say  "I'm thinking of you"?

White on White is a current trend and I hope it lasts forever.  The Clean and Simple style is one I really admire, but sometimes it seems too bare to me.  I want something with a little more textural interest added to the mix.  My frequent solution is to die cut a frame from another piece of the same cardstock I've used for the background, run it through an embossing folder and layer it over the card front.  The result is added texture, yet still with a Clean and Simple feel . . . works for me!
